family, it was the clinton model that inspired my politics. the republicans after this loss, i couldn't, james said it best and said it in a way that he like hearing folks in the south say it. he said it well -- the republicans have taken their loss and just doubled down. if not tripled down. i like paul ryan, he's a bright guy. but for the life of me how you think you can take the affordable care act, gut it, take the things that you think are good, take all the benefits for people, those without health insurance and align it with what joy said and provide essentially the goods of those who have a lot is beyond me. now having said that i don't know how much more we can raise taxes on the wealthiest in the country. if you look at the big, big states in the country, people are paying 39% in the high rate and -- >> bill maher is tie ired of paying a high tax rate. >> he's not alone. the question is how do you find the balance. i don't think there's anything wrong with asking the question. i don't fully agree with the fact that there's not an equivalency between the two. i think there's
. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and
secretary of state hillary clinton getting on the right side of history in her view and the view of her party coming up with a video changing the clinton view on doma and in the republican party, we're hearing from all across the spectrum that regardless of what the supreme court does the party needs to have a more libertarian view on this. republicans are telling us it would be a huge help with fund-raising especially in the big states of new york, california, and florida. if the republican party were to be more open on this. and people are telling us that investors don't want to invest what they think losing national elections which could continue to be the case if republicans stay very narrow on this issue. republicans i talked to even extremely conservative ones, very christian conservative republicans are telling me the polls they have seen in the last couple of weeks have been eye-opening, showing not only that young people very heavily in favor of gay marriage, but if you extrapolate that a little bit in just 10, 20 years, this is going to be 70/30 issue that republicans are goin
-one piece. we have experience of this. contribute able to to many contributions from world. speaking clinton was that since the united nations was founded, tyrant -- ireland is the one country that can validly point to the fact that we have personnel and peacekeepers in some locations around the world on peacekeeping and humanitarian missions since the u.n. was founded. of the well aware troubles in ireland over a 30- year time and how painful that was and how it affected life on our island brutally, tragically, and involved an enormous scale of response from some many people. many people. the hatred and loss was written over our timely -- tiny island. democracy and the region and the pursuit of democratic ideals, they were part of peace. the united states and america played its part in that area -- in that. america, in its pursuit of democracy, united us in so many ways. thatall being in this city in 1996 when the clinton administration called meetings from a business and political point of view. i remember senator george mitchell speaking about democracy. i remember him recalling his own f

taxpayers. in 1990's president clinton worked with a republican congress to grow the economy and to restrain spending. in the 1990's, the balanced budget agreement actually resulted in a much faster balanced budget than anybody anticipated. balancing the budget was a major accomplishment for republicans in the 1990's, and also part of president clinton's legacy. i would hope that president obama would learn from that. the american people overwhelmingly support balancing our budgets. and the budget the senate democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs, and, frankly, much higher taxes from the american people. we certainly hope the president will change his mind and submit a plan that actually balances the budget. let's be clear, the democrats in this town who reject the goal of balancing the budget i think were out of step of where the american people are. the american people know you can't continue to spend money you don't have. i didn't come here for a fancy title or big office. i want to hand my kids and grandkids the same shot at the american dream th

the bold move with president clinton at camp david in the summer of 2000 we got the second antifattah and buses blowing up in the hearts of jerusalem and tel aviv and all of our major cities. over a thousand israelis killed. and as a result of a security situation that emnated from a poorly implemented peace process. now, i think israelis feel that we have to be past the arafat era and be in a new era of mutual recognition and real security and that is why prime minister netanyahu as he tries to make peace with the palestinians and the rest of the arab world will insist that any agreement we reach must be based on firm security grounds. >> mike: there appeared to be a thawing of what obviously had been a frosty relationship between the president and prime minister netanyahu. all of that is well and good anda you hope to see a warmer and more cordial relationship. the real question, do the israelis feel more confident that the united states will step in and do anything necessary to keep iran from having nuclear weapons? >> that is an excellent question, governor. because in our private
heard him say this about former presidents. former president clinton founded the clinton global initiative. jimmy carter got involved in habitat for humanity. all the former presidents, including his father, got involved in raising money for haiti. he's going into painting? little difference in your post-presidential interests in life, wouldn't you say, victoria? nothing wrong with painting but most former presidents seem to have some broader, more global, more humanitarian interests. >> you're absolutely right, reverend. but what i'm detecting here is laying low. let's not forget when president george w. bush left office, he left office with a 36% approval rating. a couple months before that he was at 25% approval rating. so he's just laying low, either for his own good that he wanted to get out of the public eye or his brother might even be asking him to keep out of the public eye. this new emphasis on painting, good for him, paint on. but let's go beyond that, as you said, let's try to remedy what you did in the decade before. >> but behind every dark cloud there is a silver
of staff to former president clinton said, this is the most predictable financial crisis in the history of the country that's looming. and this was several years ago. and nothing has gotten better since then. wii juswe just careen closer anr to the tipping point. senator gregg noted that mandatory spending is a primary -- unfortunately, all of the measures put in place have ignored smart entitlement reforms to control spending over the long term and comprehensive tax reforms to make the tax code more ta efficient. we all heard that before from people all across the political speck tom, republicans and democrats, liberals and conservatives. there is a growing consensus that all of these elements must be addressed. douglas holtz-eakin, former director of the congressional budget office noted that the level and projected growth of federal debt are is a threat to future prosperity. the nation, he said, despite claims to the contrary, remains on a damaging debt pathway. dr. holtz-eakin countered arguments that reducing the debt is not urgent because the crisis is a distant threat by pointing
-mail sent to the former secretary of state hillary clinton. other reported targets include colin powell's facebook page and e-mails of the bush family. a shadowy figure is said to be behind the hacking. we're trying to figure out just what is going on, just who the guccifer as it is pronounced is. brian todd is walking into the situation room right now. you've been looking into the story. what are you finding out? >> this is a very mysterious figure and he has the u.s.'s best investigators after him. we have confirmed as wolf mentioned this afternoon the secret service is investigating the hacks of e-mails sent to hillary clinton by a former aide. experts worry the perpetrator may start to target e-mails mrs. clinton, herself, and others will send. a hacker who is reported to have broken into correspondence involving former presidents apparently has found a new target. confidential memos to hillary clinton from a former aide have been hacked according to the website smoking gun. the secret service says it is investigating. smoking gun says it has been in touch with the hacker known as g
.5 trillion in new revenue and to cover that price tag, president clinton revealed the hard truth. i'll quote president bill clinton. "they'll have to eliminate so many deductions like the ones for home mortgages and charitable giving, that middle-class families will see their tax bills go up. that's the promise of the ryan republican budget. million-dollar-class families will see their taxes bills go up. we don't. we take 7% out of that which means we can focus on the corporate tax spending, on the high-end deductions, the carried interest exception. so we don't have to go officer a the middle class tax cuts. let me close by reading one thing if i may have consent. we have just welcomed a new pope. the conference of catholic bishops had this to say about the ryan budget last year. congress faces a difficult task to balance needs and resources and allocate burdens and sacrifices. just solutions however must require shared sacrifice by all, including raising adequate revenues, eliminating unnecessary military and other spending and fairly addressing the long-term costs of health insurance and

was chief of staff for president clinton; very successful businessman. alan simpson, his cochair there, was a former republican senator from wyoming. and that's not what they told us. in the committee two years ago, in the budget committee, maybe a little over two years now they gave a joint statement in which they said this nation has never faced a more predictable financial crisis. and what they were saying was the level of debt we are operating on, the unsustainability of the debt path was so great that we will have some sort of fiscal crisis. i remember about that same time the chairman of the fed, mr. bernanke, testified that you have all these out years and you talk about the debt numbers and all that, but you really don't have to worry about them. i'm paraphrasing but this was pretty close to what he said. because i think these were his exact words: it will never happen. what he basically told us was there would be a fiscal crisis before we get this far down the road. the demographics: aging population, fewer workers, greater debt every year, mushrooming in the out years. so i'm

clinton is announcing her support today for guy marriage. in an online video, mrs. clinton says that guy and lesbian couples deserves the rights of citizenship and that includes marriage. the announcement puts mrs. clinton in line with other potential democratic presidential candidates of 2016. >>> "oz the great and powerful" kept alive at the box office taking in $42.2 million, earning the top spot for the second week in a row. "the call" debuted in second place and "the incredible burt wonderstone" took third place. >>> flying down to rio is more exciting if you don't use an airplane. these two daredevils swooped over into the brazilian hot spot wearing wing suits and helmet cams. their fascinating footage included a daring pass between two towers with very little room to spare. wow. that is unbelievable. >>> crazy stuff. 11 minutes after the hour. dylan joined us on the set. >> nice sandwich here. as for the weather, we are going to see more snow, of all things. i think we're just getting enough of the snow right now. we have the winter storm warnings posted across the northeast. they
unelected judges. >> for the first time in her long political career, hillary clinton came out in support of same-sex marriage in a video that your organization released this week. the former secretary of state, u.s. senator, 2008 presidential candidate, backed benefits for same-sex couples but never made an endorsement for marriage. she says it's about equality. listen. >> gay rights are human rights. and human rights are gay rights. and the united states would be a leader in defending those rights. >> do you think this is move to influence the supreme court like the american academy of pediatrics and others trying to get the opinion out there now before the court decides? >> i think what you see from hillary clinton and from the american academy of pediatrics and more and more figures public and private, more and more organizations, this is the issue in front of the court and in front of the american people in a way that it never has been before and lots of folks want to make sure their position on the issue is clear and you have seen more and more folks coming out for equality because
about when politicians get into trouble. you're a believer, as you were with bill clinton, get out there right away and get ahead of it. get the facts out. a lot of times i think presidents or c.e.o.s understand the magnitude of the problem. >> when will they ever learn? every time you see the same mistake made, to give a half truth or no comment because lawyers are telling you to no comment and there's no one to confront the lawyers. what's more important in politics, business and life. >> neil: it helps to make sure your confidantes are lawyers. the attorney client privilege shields you. >> you have to be in the room with lawyers to make the argument it's better to get the facts out, take the hit and get it behind you. if you're outside the room, which is what public relation firms are, you only get to tell what the lawyers choose. >> neil: we can ride this out but remember the dustup over the president golfing with tiger woods. >> i have an idea, mr. president, you don't want press coverage of you golfing with tiger woods. everyone wants to golf with tiger woods. let's not the p
clinton and the democrats with some help from some republicans had put in place, they shredded it under george bush by giving tax breaks to the wealthiest, putting two wars on the credit card, a prescription drug plan that didn't allow medicare to negotiate for lower prices, and the deficit went wild. and it didn't even make sense from an -- i am an old -- i am old. i'm an old economics major, and i remember the basics. you know, you don't go into such deep, deep debt because if there is a recession, you can't really help spend your way out of it, and what happened is when president obama got elected, he faced the worst deficit crisis. that deficit went up to well over a trillion. he's gotten it back to $850 billion. it's still too high, but the fact is i never heard a word from my really good friends on the other side of the aisle. when they were racking up those deficits. oh, this supply-side stuff is going to be great. well, it wasn't great, it wasn't good, and i'm glad that this budget takes us back to the notion in the clinton years which is you have a balanced approach between rev

president bush, but 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. under president clinton and then president bush came in and did a big tax cut in 2001. put us out of balance for a long period of time. and during the period of time when the budget was imbalance the last four times out of 40 years, the revenue was coming in, was higher than it is in any year in the republican budget that's before us now. and what that tells you is that their budget approach is trying o seek balance on the backs of everybody else. by really cutting into those important investments that have helped power our company, by violating important commitments to seniors. and in the end, by raising taxes on middle-income people. why else would they not have joined democrats in sending policy statement to the ways and means committee that says when you go about eliminating tax preferences, don't hit middle-income taxpayers in the process. in fact, mr. chairman, if you look at the mortgage interest deduction, for example, mortgage interest deduction really helps middle-income people. homeowners. so in addition to saying, ways and m
license so many ways. i would call the city in 1990 and 95 and 96 when the clinton administration called meetings between the representatives of ireland and the united states from a business and political point of view. i remember senator george schmidt chilled speaking about democracy. i remember him recalling his own family's involvement because of immigration and his economic circumstances. this country gave him the democratic opportunity to serve as senate leader for 20 years. he was followed at that meeting by ron brown who tragically lost his life in bosnia in a plane crash sometime later. he said about democracy that george mitchell pointed out he came here to this country because of economic reasons and he spoke of democracy in these terms. he said his ancestors came to america not because of economic circumstances but because they were in chains. at the same time democracy gave him the chance to participate in american life and serve it the highest levels of the administration. it was also evident though through the work of president clinton who refused to give up and often refe
into another recession. 7 million jobs created under bush. 22 million under clinton, right after we raised the taxes. that was in seven or eight years. what we are proposing in our budget -- let's put it this way, under the ryan budget, total receipts of government would be about 19% of gdp. under the reagan administration 23.5%.o under the caucus budget, receipts would go up to 21.8%. the lower range of the reagan administration, budget receipts. what inhibits job creation is not high taxes. history does not show that. what and him it -- what inhibits job creation is low demand. if people do not have money, they are not spending it to buy products. we had a housing bubble collapse in 2007 that eliminated eight dollars trillion in value. when it didtgages for closure as a result. we're still about two dollars trillion -- to join dollars below. people are not investing. ?hy not because of uncertainty. you are not going to hire somebody or invest in a new factory if nobody is going to buy a new product. if everybody is saving money because they do not have money, which is what has happened i
deficits for the first time in -- since the clinton administration. bringing deficits and revenues in line, mr. speaker. what we do is we prioritize those programs that are so important to so many americans. as you see from this chart, mr. speaker, social security spending up each and every year in our budget while extending the life of the social security trust fund. medicare spending up each and every year in our budget while extending the life of the medicare trust fund. mr. speaker, if a budget is nothing else, it is a statement of our values and our priorities. and the republican study committee's value and priority is to end the passing of responsibilities from this generation to the next, to rb -- to be responsible for the bills we create today and paying for those priorities today. four short years, mr. speaker, we can be out of this conversation about debt and deficit and begin the conversation about freing the next generation from the $16.7 trillion that you and i and previous congresses have wracked up on their behalf. with that, i reserve the balance of my time. the chair: the

clinton was president. finally he hit someone again and he came before my chord because that bumped up to being a felony. i understand. we took him to the board and released him, i often want to know, did you stick around long enough to watch them come across the border or did you drive away after you dropped them off? this is a huge problem. with each one of these federal felony convictions, it means we are paying for a prosecutor, law enforcement to get these people, then a prosecutor. we are paying for a defense attorney for them. we are paying for the officers for the prosecutor, the offices for the law enforcement, the judges, the appellate courts, and the number one conviction is for federal felony reentry after they have been deported? when i start thinking about that fact, it becomes pretty clear the best thing this administration could do for this country is secure the border so they do not have to keepre- catching the people who have already been deported. to heck with how much a wall costs or drone coverage. whatever it takes. this message should go up to the president. this
, it had been created by president clinton. the affordable care act will help provide the health coverage that is needed by millions of americans. i rise today to speak particularly about texas. some 24% of the population of texas are uninsured. and yet our state government has refused to accept the expanded medicaid. so today, mr. speaker, i make a public plea on behalf of the millions of texans who get up and work every day, who do not have health insurance, to be able to have a state government that is ignoring their plea, that is to have expanded medicaid to provide health insurance for working texans and poor texans. those that work as well below the minimum wage. it seems selfish that the concerns of those who lead state government are all political and not in any way concerned about the mothers and fathers and children who all the medical professionals from county governments to private practice have said expanded medicaid coverage, if taken by the state of texas, like florida, like ohio, will save lives. do it now. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back
after clinton had seen president assad in geneva. prior to the trip, the prime minister conveyed to us what it was he wanted out of it. he produced what he wanted to see come out of it. i walked into the meeting feeling highly confident. we did what you asked. the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. if you go into these meetings in the expectations are very high, each reader is suddenly worried about what you are going to ask of them. when are low, you are in a better position to have a serious conversation and can explore the possibilities. maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about, what are the consequences of not getting anything done? with each side. enough, howsevere can we think together about what it is that could be possible? where could there be some points of commonality we could build on? , theret you will have will end up being serious conversations in private that are much more likely to be held precisely because no one is anticipating that he is coming then
clinton and exploded our nation's debt. now after a decade of reckless financial management, the majority is proposing another budget that is unserious as it is extreme. take for example the field of scientific research. more than 50% of our economic growth since world war ii can be attributed to the development and adoption of new technologies. yet the budget proposed drastic cuts to research at the national institutes of health, the national science foundation, the national err naughtics and space administration, among others. as -- err naughtics and space ad-- arow naughtics and space -- a; eronautics and space administration as aamong others. you cannot turn on and off research like a faucet. under the majority's budget that valuable research will be ended and it's important -- and these important discoveries will probably not be made in the united states. the majority wants to impose such cuts on top of the cuts contained in the sequester, even though this effects of the sequester are just beginning to be felt. for example, in the coming weeks, airport control towers will begin to cl
along with president bill clinton. out of that plan we actually did balance a budget and led to one of the healthiest economies we have had. president obama should do likewise. work with the republicans in congress together to put forward a plan that will in fact balance a budget and help american families enjoy real prosperity and a much more secure retirement. >> good morning. this is a good week for house republicans. this is also a week of contrasts. years.get balances in 10 their budget never balances. and raises $1 worth of taxes. i think the question for the american people s. which budget actually helps? which helps people? well, i would say that a balanced budget is going to help grow our economy and provide the certainty needed that so many people out there looking for the government to do the very same thing they are having to do at home. which budget helps those who are in need? our budget provides a prescription to save the social safety nets of medicare, medicaid. theirs doesn't. theirs brings about the demise of those programs. which budget brings about the kind of ta
balanced the budget. i was note those were the years when we had a democratic president, president clinton, we were working off of the 1993 deal that was made to both reduce spending and increase revenues. we had growth in the economy. we had low unemployment. we balanced the budget for five years in a row. now, during that time -- during that time our revenues averaged about 20% of our gross domestic product. now it's down to less than 18%. so -- and we also know that demographics, including the tens of millions of baby boomers becoming eligible for social security and medicare, will place vast new demands on our budget. at the same time we need to make investments in infrastructure, research, education to prepare our young people and our economy for the competitive global economy that's coming. i remind my colleagues that when president george w. bush's tax cut was passed in 2001, it was defended on the grounds that it was only going to take a small part of the projected surplus as that we were going to have for the next ten years. that was -- that's what was said. well, as we now know,

this issue that in january of 2001, when president bill clinton left office, this country had an annual federal budget surplus of $236 billion. a surplus of $236 billion in january 2001. we now have an $850 billion deficit. what happened? well, i think many americans know what happened. when you go to war in afghanistan and iraq and you don't pay for those wars, you add to the deficit. when you give huge tax breaks to the wealthiest people in this country and you don't offset that, you add to the deficit. when you pass a medicare part-d prescription drug program, you don't pay for that, you add to the deficit. and on top of all of that, we must understand that right now at 15.8% of g.d.p., revenue coming in to the federal government is the lowest that it has been in 60 years. and the reason for that is that we are in the midst of a very serious recession, a recession caused by the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior on wall street. and not only has that led to significant increases in unemployment and businesses going under; once again, it resulted in less tax revenue coming in to
